Jennifer Garner was spotted during a selfless act of kindness as she worked to find shoes for a homeless man in a wheelchair. The star of “13 Going on 30” was quick to ask to purchase the shoes from a member of the paparazzi when she realized that the homeless man was wheeling himself around while barefooted.
The encounter started when Garner could be seen stopping her car on the side of the road in California to offer the man a bag full of what appeared to be socks. The weather will soon be turning and the warmth will surely be appreciated. After the brief encounter, she decided to do a little bit more to help the man.
Garner turned to the ever-present paparazzi who was following and snapping pics of the star and offered to buy the shoes off of one of the camera-wielding men. She even offered money, something that paparazzi members are always in dire need of acquiring.
Garner could be heard asking the paparazzi what size shoes they wear after jogging in their direction away for the man in the wheelchair. Once she found a man with the correct size, she offered to buy them. The paparazzi man, however, offered to give them to the man himself.
It also turned out that he had a blanket in his car that Garner could also give to homeless man to keep him warm in the coming months. Garner has a long standing reputation for helping the less fortunate, including on her 50th birthday in 2022 when she organized a food drive to celebrate.
In an instagram post commemorating the event, she wrote, “Random act of kindness: gather these essentials in a quart-sized Ziploc bag, and keep them in your car to give away when you see someone in need. Inspired by my kind friend, @whitneyformt. A pair of thick socks. Kleenex. Hand wipes. Disposable toothbrushes. Chapstick. A couple of granola bars. I forgot this time, but like to add feminine hygiene products, too. Add $5, $10, $20 and a smile.”
These kinds of constant acts of kindness and selflessness are what make Jennifer Garner one of the most widely like women in Hollywood. Living from a place where homelessness is as rampant like it is in Los Angeles poses a question to each resident. Ignore the issue or try to fix it?
Garner understands that Gavin Newsom and the other Democrats in charge of the area are not going to get their act together and clean up the streets anytime soon, so she decided to make a difference wherever she can.
This is what endears her to so many fans and fellow actors. Her drive to improve her communities even saw her recognized by the Texas senate for work that she did to improve the lives of the less fortunate folks from her hometown.
